Leganto reading list

Lecturer guide

Add link to Leganto in LEO

To get started with your reading list, firstly add a link to Leganto in your LEO unit.  Use the external tool function in LEO to do this.


1. Sign into LEO and go to the relevant unit

2. Turn editing on

3. Within the relevant section, select Add Activity, and select  External Tool 

4. In the 'Adding a new External tool' box, complete the following fields:

  • Activity name: eg. THBS100 Reading List
  • Preconfigured tool: Select 'Reading List' from the drop down menu

5. Then Save and Return to Unit







You have now created a Leganto link in your LEO unit! This link will have a purple book icon in LEO:

Access to Leganto reading lists

Students can only see reading lists for units they are enrolled in.

When students click on an external tool link in LEO to their leganto reading list (see image below), this tells Leganto that they are enrolled in the unit and have the right to see the associated reading list. Students only need to do this once, Leganto will remember this for the future.

If a student sees the error message (below) ask the student to click on the the Reading List external tool link in LEO to access the reading list. The student will only need to do this once as Leganto will remember them for the future.

If the student continues to have problems after trying the Reading List external tool link, contact the Library.
